Make plans for your funeral but don't put them in your will

Many decisions have to be made when you are going through the estate planning process. One aspect of this might not be one that is commonly considered when you are creating your will and setting up trusts. This is the funeral planning part of the process. You might not really want to consider this but having everything spelled out clearly can help your family members considerably.

Set your power of attorney for your finances

People who have considerable assets need to think about a plan for what they are going to do if they aren't able to make decisions by themselves. One of the options that you have is to establish a power of attorney designation. This sets up a way for your financial affairs to be handled while you can't make those choices. You just have to make sure that you handle this arrangement in the best manner that meets your needs. We can work with you to make that happen.

How a '5 x 5 power' in a trust can help your heirs

People who are creating an estate plan will sometimes decide that they are going to include trusts in that plan so that they can transfer assets over to their heirs more easily. This often comes with many benefits, including easy transfer and the ability to protect both the beneficiary and assets, depending on the type of trust.

Create the estate plan that cares for your loved ones

Estate planning is something that many adults don't want to have to think about very often. Unfortunately, there are many things that you might miss if you are trying to rush through the process. It is imperative that you take the time to think carefully about every component of the plan so that you can ensure it is what you want for your assets.

Discuss charitable estate plan components with your heirs

There are many aspects of your life that you need to think about when you are creating your estate plan. Not only do you need to consider where you want assets to go when you pass away, but you also have to think about what you need to happen if you are ever unable to make decisions for yourself. We can work with you to come up with a step-by-step method for getting everything handled.

Get your estate plan made to start the new year off right

Estate planning is a vital duty of being an adult. The first of the year is a good time to get this taken care of so you start the year off knowing that you've done what you could to protect your family if something happens to you. When you are doing this, make sure that you think carefully about what you are planning.

Make plans for your end-of-life care while you can

It isn't easy to think about becoming incapacitated, but it is something that is very necessary. What if you are unconscious after a car wreck or suffer a debilitating condition that takes away your ability to make your wishes known? In both of these situations, you will be at the mercy of others to decide what is best for you. If this doesn't sound like an ideal situation to you, now is a good time to sit down and get your living will set.

Family heirlooms should be included in your estate plan

Thinking about how your relatives will carry on when you pass away is difficult. One thing that you might do is ensure that your estate plan is in place so they have one less thing to worry about. This will help them focus on their healing. We can help you get things together so that you can plan for them.

Creating a valid will isn't difficult

When you create an estate plan, you need to write a will. This document might seem old-fashioned, but it still plays an important role in the estate. Without one, the state will determine who gets your assets based on intestate succession laws, which outline exactly what will happen based on a person's relationship to you.

Estate planning must be a priority for young adults

Young adults don't think that they will die soon, so they might put off getting their estate plans together. This isn't a good idea, as you never know when an accident or health issue might claim your life. Instead of leaving your family without a clue about your wishes, you should start working on an estate plan right away.
